Patrol Responsibilities

The patrol staff have taken a pro-active approach to law enforcement with the ultimate goal to prevent crime and violence.

In an effort to safeguard the rights, lives and property of the citizens of Cass County, we have implemented the Adopt-A-Community Program. This program is designed to strengthen community spirit and build support for crime prevention.

The deputies spend about 275 hours on crime prevention talks and programs each year. During their patrol shifts, they complete 70,000 building/door checks on business and residences, along with 700 motorist assists.

It is also the policy of the department to promote traffic safety through traffic law enforcement. The deputies issue about 10,000 traffic citations and warnings along with checking 4,500 people and 7,500 vehicles through the National Crime Information Center for wanted or stolen.

We also respond to about 180 motor vehicle crashes per year and participate with local law enforcement in D.U.I. saturation patrols and arrest about 225 drunk or drugged drivers per year.
